Comments about Nunez red card

Elliot, 19, defended his teammate claiming that the frustrations that were built up for him were because of the team’s poor performance up to that point.

 

It’s not his fault to be honest because we conceded the goal in the first half, which put us in that situation. For him it’s a learning curve and for the team it’s our fault, it’s not just him, it’s everyone’s fault,” Elliot revealed speaking to the official LFC website.

 

“We’re instantly around him trying to lift him up. Obviously, he’s very down in the changing room feeling sorry for the team and thinking it’s his fault, which it’s not, it’s all of our faults.”

 

An ex-Liverpool player also came out in defence of Nunez, posting a highly criticised claim that Nunez didn’t do anything wrong.

Dietmar Hamann, former Liverpool player and Champions League winner, downplayed the incident claiming it wasn’t a ‘proper’ headbutt.

 

“I think he just walked into him,” he said Breakfast the morning after the game.

 

“It wasn’t even a headbutt, he just walked into the defender Andersen.

 

“If it was a proper headbutt I can understand it, to extend the ban, but he just walked into him, three games is enough.”

 

Although he did retract his comments so to speak, claiming, “Yes you shouldn’t do it, we all agree he shouldn’t do it.”
